I figured out the input on my POD HD and if I put it too high the recording on Reaper sounds awful and the more I lower it but not to low, it sounds pretty good but there is one problem. I can't hear myself play! My input is my actual volume and is there someway to keep my volume high without Reaper sounding bad, I tried lowering the master volume on Reaper (on the bottom left) and it still sounded bad.

It just sucks now because whenever I record, I can't play loud. Need help!

EDIT - Is there a timer on the record button or something?

What do you mean? Raise the volume on your computer or your speakers? Put the input volume up until it's just about to clip, then lower it a bit. Surely your POD can do this. Haven't tried recording with a POD in reaper though.

my speakers are on max and I can't raise my pod volume without the recording sounding like shit.
